Collaborative Family Lawyers are committed to this relatively new process because it can achieve creative solutions that meet each individual family’s needs and avoids the hostility and polarisation that happens within the Court process.
The process is characterised by these key elements:
1. The Participation Agreement – signed by the couple and their lawyers at the beginning of the process committing the group to open and honest negotiations.
2. The no Court agreement – the Participation Agreement requires all four people to agree that the case will not go to Court.
3. Four way meetings – communication and negotiations are undertaken in real time face to face around a table.
